Ficosa announces product that cleans sensors and cameras automatically


Ficosa, which specialises in the research, development and sales of camera systems for the automotive industry, has launched a product to clean the lenses of built-in cameras and sensors on vehicles. Called Sensor & Camera Cleaning, this product removes dirt through a hybrid system that expels water and/or pressurszed air depending on the need and lenses position.

Robert López, Ficosa´s Technical Director, explained, "The implementation of cameras and sensors has been a great innovation in the automotive industry. However, these systems have posed a new challenge in that any dirt that adheres to the lens can disable its function and affect the driver's visibility. With Sensor & Camera Cleaning we have not only developed a product capable of responding to cameras and sensors cleaning needs but also we have taken an important step towards more comfortable and safer driving.”

Sensor & Camera Cleaning is a lightweight and small-sized, integrated device that can be installed anywhere in the vehicle. It is connected to the windshield circuit, so requires no additional water pump that would increase cost and weight. Its operation is very similar to the windshield washer system. In addition to cleaning with water, Sensor & Camera Cleaning can also incorporate the function of expelling air to quickly remove dust and water droplets that may remain on the lenses. Ficosa will be providing manufacturers with an innovative product, that can be customised according to their needs, taking into account the function and position of each camera or sensor.
